Gilani denounces thrashing of Kashmiri students in Srinagar

SRINAGAR: The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has strongly denounced the thrashing of Kashmiri students at the National Institute of Technology (NIT) in Held Srinagar by the students belonging to different parts of India.

The Indian students had beaten up the Kashmiri students after the latter celebrated West Indies’ victory over India in the semi-final of the World T20, reported Kashmir Media Service.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar warned the occupation authorities that incidents like the one took place in the NIT would have serious consequences on the ground situation if the same continued to reoccur in the future. “People will take every possible step to ensure the safety and security of their children,” he stated.

The APHC Chairman asked New Delhi to introspect why Kashmiris celebrated India’s defeat on streets. “The non-Kashmiri students must go through the history of the Kashmir dispute. They must know that till India continues its military occupation here, Kashmiris will continue to vent out their anger against this country, at all occasions,” he added.

Syed Ali Gilani said that the assault should also serve as an eye-opener for the puppets of New Delhi in the territory that Kashmiri people were not even safe in their home land. He pointed out that attack on the Kashmiri students vindicated Hurriyet leaders’ apprehensions that under the garb of technical educational and health institutions India had evil designs only to strength its illegal occupation and change the demographic composition of occupied Kashmir.
